    Harley-Davidson is preparing roll out two new motorcycles designed specifically for women within the next few weeks. These bikes are basically women-centric versions of its two popular motorcycles - the Street 750 and the Street 500.

    To make these bikes comfortable for women riders, the company has replaced the bulbous fuel tanks with the smaller ones other than employing comparatively less chrome, much unlike other Harleys. Furthermore, the company has also lowered the seats, added smaller handle grips and positioned the foot pegs differently, for better handling.

    Industry experts believe that Harley's effort will help the company perform well against its rivals like Suzuki and Kawasaki. And we think it will not be a tough task for the American bike maker to sell these bikes to women since they already form a sizable part of Harley's buying population.

    The company claims to have been selling one in 10 motorcycles to a woman globally. In US alone, the company has observed a 30 percent rise in number of women buyers over the last one decade.

    Since the company already sells the Street 750 in India, its women-centric version might help its Indian subisidary to woo buyers, espcially in major metro cities. However, the company hasn't made an official statement about the arrival of these women-centric bikes in India yet.
